Criminal Minds

(9 votes)

Criminal Minds tv seriesSupervisory Special Agent Jason Gideon returns to the Behavioral Analysis Unit after an extended medical leave, and BAU team leader Aaron Hotchner must secretly evaluate Gideon's performance. Gideon's first case upon his return involves tracking down an unsub (unknown subject) in Seattle before he kills his latest kidnap victim.

Jason Gideon's FBI profile team is called to an Arizona College campus where students and teachers fall victim to arson. However the pyromaniac profile doesn't quite apply: the culprit didn't make sure (s)he could enjoy the crimes by observing the victims perishing. Dr. Spencer Reid finds a better way to fit the facts with a rarer serial killer logic: a 'religious' compulsion, in this case both triggered and given form by a boundless obsession with the number three- if this theory holds true a third, possibly triple, arson is at hand...

The team profiles the Tommy Killer, who rapes and murders women forced to watch him in upper class houses, where he destroys status symbols. As soon as the press notices that detail, he makes a habit of quoting 17th century poetic ballads on Death conversing with its victims. They are confident enough about their profile of a resentful, skilled white middle class man to rule out a less well-organized black attacker but arrest the suspect to make Tommy manifest himself, alas by an untraceable phone call - which precisely provides a crucial clue.

Trivia

On the show, suspects are routinely referred to as "unsubs", or unknown subjects.

Matthew Gray Gubler was once photographed by famed photographer Mia Grace who had a small part in the series' pilot episode.

CBS aired an episode after Super Bowl XLI (2007) (TV) in the hopes of transforming the series from a relatively modest hit into a top ratings performer. The episode featured cameos by Super Bowl announcers Jim Nantz and Phil Simms.

The character of Special Agent Reid was a child prodigy, having graduated from high school at the age of 12. Matthew Gray Gubler, describing what may form his character's genius, has said that Reid may have Asperger's syndrome and perhaps even be mildly schizophrenic. Reid's mother was schizophrenic herself. JJ collected butterflies as a child.

Mandy Patinkin, who plays Gideon, has a son named Gideon.

In the time between Lola Glaudini's departure from the show and Paget Brewster's arrival, footage is used in the opening credits that originally featured Glaudini. The footage, from episode 1.03, is digitally altered so that Glaudini does not appear.

The original title for Criminal Minds was Quantico, and the pilot was filmed in Vancouver. In the Quantico script, Jason Gideon was named Jason Donovan.

When David Rossi joins the team, he makes a comment that their offices are better than "that bunker" the BAU used to work out of. The comment isn't metaphorical. The actual BAU (in its many earlier incarnations and titles) used to operate out of a bunker former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover had built below FBI headquarters in Quantico, VA.

Almost every single member of the BAU team uses a Glock pistol. Morgan and Hotch use a Glock 17, and carry a Glock 27 backup on their ankles. Morgan also opts for a tactical illumination attachment on his Glock 17 model. Reid uses a Glock 17 until early season four where he trades it in for a silver .38 Smith 65 3' revolver. Prentiss uses a Glock 19, while JJ uses a Glock 26, both of which were specified in a TV Guide Network tour of the props department. Jason Gideon used an older version standard Federal issue Sig Sauer P226 and David Rossi uses his own personal Springfield .45 caliber handgun.

New Amsterdam
John Amsterdam, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective is immortal. He is 400 years old, but his body structure is that of a 35-year-old. Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
